Kathleen Fitzpatrick Visiting Fellowships 2017

Applications are invited from suitably qualified doctoral and early career scholars to participate in the Laureate Program in International Law at Melbourne Law School during 2017.

The Laureate Program in International Law is funded by the Australian Research Council from 2015 to 2020, and led by Professor Anne Orford.

The Program establishes a new interdisciplinary research team, working on a major project entitled Civil War, Intervention, and International Law. That project addresses one of the most pressing questions in contemporary international law and politics: whether, and if so when, it is lawful for external actors to recruit, train, arm, equip, finance, or intervene militarily in support of parties engaged in a civil war. The Program brings together leading scholars in law and the humanities, world-class early career researchers, and innovative practitioners to develop new methods for evaluating the rapidly changing international law on intervention and to enhance the capacity of international law to respond to major social and political transformations.

The Kathleen Fitzpatrick Visiting Fellowships are offered annually, and are designed to enable outstanding female doctoral and early career researchers to visit Melbourne Law School and work with the Laureate Program for up to two months. Fellows will be closely integrated into the Laureate program, take part in events and workshops, participate in reading groups and work-in-progress seminars, and be invited to participate in the final international conference in 2020. 

Funding of up to $3000 is available for Kathleen Fitzpatrick Doctoral and Postdoctoral Fellows towards the costs of travel to, and accommodation in, Melbourne.  Visiting fellows from outside Australia are responsible for obtaining and funding any necessary visas.

Applicants for the Visiting Doctoral Fellowships must be currently enrolled in doctoral study on a topic related to the work of the Laureate Program. Applicants for the Visiting Postdoctoral Fellowships must have been awarded a PhD in a related field within the past ten years.  

Applications must include the following

  • Curriculum vitae
  • Statement (maximum 1000 words) outlining the applicant’s research and how it would benefit from participation in the Laureate program
  • Letter of reference
  • Proposed dates of the visit in 2017

Letters of application should be addressed to Professor Anne Orford and submitted with attachments to: laureate-civilwar@unimelb.edu.au.
